SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants manager Bruce Bochy called for a replay review in the fifth inning of Friday night's series opener against the Mets and won his challenge.

Bochy contested that a pitch from New York starter Jon Niese hit Matt Cain's right foot, after originally being ruled to have hit the dirt and bounced to the backstop.

After review, the call was overturned, and Cain was awarded first base.

Bochy has now won nine of the 13 challenges he's initiated.
